The Katsina government has banned large religious, social and other night gatherings.

The information commissioner, Bala Salisu-Zango, made the announcement in a statement on Saturday.

The commissioner said, “This ban includes large religious and social public gatherings with the exception of obligatory prayers.”

The commissioner, however, said permission must be obtained in the case of such gatherings during hours of the day.

“When it becomes necessary to hold the gathering, permission must be sought from a police divisional officer within the local government area where the gathering will take place.

“This announcement is in the best public interest and safety,” he said.

The commissioner said that the ban took immediate effect.

Mr Salisu-Zango, therefore, urged the public to strictly comply with the directives, as violators would face the full wrath of the law.
